Most products from Hale Cosmeceuticals are safe and effective for “over the counter” use. However, there are a few products, mainly chemical peels, that we reserve for professional use only. Here’s why:
Professional (licensed) estheticians receive extensive training so that they understand the anatomy and physiology of the skin and the chemistry of skincare products. Their education and experience mean they know:
If using a professional-only product without the professional, you run the risk of damaging your skin and experiencing (unnecessary) discomfort in the process.
If you use a professional-only product without the knowledge and skill of a professional to apply it, quite likely, you simply will not get the results you want. You are likely to either overdo or underdo the application, meaning you get little benefit or “too much of a good thing,” which translates to skin sensitivity, redness and discomfort.
Hale Cosmeceuticals does everything we can to prevent misapplication of our products. When we say professional-use only, we mean it. To order the product, you must have a valid esthetician’s license from the state in which you practice. This is for your safety and to ensure optimal performance of our products.
